Veterans Day

Thank you so much for the time and energy you spent in preparing our learners for Veteran's Day! The presentation by the learners about Veteran's Day, the poem, the choir, the Cub Scouts and the respect by all of our learners towards our Veterans made today so special for many. And let's not even get started on how awesome the whole school flag was!!! Also, thank you for the delicious breakfast you provided for the Veterans and their families. We received many heartfelt thank yous from our Veterans. They felt so honored by you and your learners. - Mary & Cooper

Clarity Survey Information from Amanda

It is time for the fall portion of the Clarity Survey! This is the survey that our 3rd-5th grade learners, educators, and parents take to help us make informed decisions on the integration of technology. The survey window will open on Monday, November 6th and must be completed by Friday, November 17th.

In order to help ensure this process goes smoothly, I will be available to assist you as needed. You are welcome to schedule time alone or with your team to work through the educator portion of the survey with me if needed.

The following list shows which educators are required to take the Clarity Survey:

  • Pre-K - 12 classroom Educators
  • PE
  • Art
  • Music
  • GT
  • MLI
  • SPED classroom educators (not aides)

You may access all of the materials needed for the survey by following these links:



Completion Survey for Educators

The link above will also provide 3-5 educators with everything they need to facilitate the learner survey for our 3rd -5th grade learners. If you would like for me to be on-hand to support your 3rd-5th grade classes as they take the survey, let me know when you’d like to give the survey. I tend to be at Wilson on Mondays, Wednesdays, and every other Friday morning.

Red and Black Super Star Nominations - Due Dec. 8th

CISD is full of dedicated and hardworking students, teachers, administrators and support staff who often go above and beyond. We would like to give you the opportunity to shine a spotlight on these students and CISD employees by nominating them to be a Red & Black Super Star.

Next nomination deadline: Dec. 8, 2017 at 5 p.m.


Judy scheduled volunteers to come almost every day during the week. If you have things you need help with please send your things to the office. If we find we don’t have many things we need help with we may ask our volunteers to come less frequently as to not lose our help and will keep you posted. Thank you! - Office Staff
